Just came home from dinner at this place. I ordered a pasta thats supposed to come with lobster bisque sauce, scallops and prawns. It came lukewarm, 1/4 of the pasta is undercooked. What an insult to call the sauce "lobster bisque". It was a grayish-brown translucent watery light broth that was cooked with dried miniature (fermented?) shirmps. It smells foul and lacks depth. It is simply a bad dish. I asked for pamesean cheese to make the dish bearable. It came in thin slices...? Well, by then I couldn't care less and dumped all the cheese in. The portion is pathetically small - while I left the place hungry, thank God I didn't have to sit through another minute of the torture.
My husband had the Basque chicken. The meat was stale; kinda reminds us of KFC and their rotten rancid chicken (only difference was that it cost about 5 times as much). The marinate tasted like heated Doritos salsa sauce from FairPrice - we had to use liberal amounts of tomato sauce to make the dish edible. Tomato sauce. Its a bloody insult to the chef to have to use tomato sauce but he/she deserves it. Oh and the potatoes that came with the dish were cold. It was a wretched dish that I wouldn't serve to my worst enemies.
All in all this has been a horrifying experience to have paid 70 bucks for. Kudos to Marmalade's marketing team - they have made mediocre food look good enough on the menu to trick people to come in. Bravo *slow clap*
We wouldn't mind paying double (triple and quadruple even) the amount for a good meal and honestly wouldn't have eaten this slop even if it was offered to us for free. Shame on you, Marmalade Pantry. Shame on you.
